Question about SmartDisk FireLite Computers & Internet
When I plug my FireLite into my mac is says there's not enough power. So I have a power adapter that allows you to choose the voltage. what voltage do I use?
Power usage is stamed on the case.Don't go over recommended power input.It's also marked on the units power adapter as output.THAT's what you want to find out.Whatever the original adapter says for output on the case,is all that's required to operate.

I had the same problem with my firelite usbflb80-c, and carefully took the case off, 4 screws (one screw under the void if broken warranty sticker) my drive had somehow wiggled it's way out if the connection pins. Figures, with 5 yrs of use, all the traveling and occasional dropping. So I carefully pushed the drive back in place until I couldn't see connection pins any more. I plugged it into my computer before I closed it back up. THANKFULLY an easy fix, but I double checked for breaks or cracks before I closed it up. :o) YAY, I thought I had lost all my files!

First of all, did you Empty the trash?
If so, then Try a full erase with Disk Utility. It's in your Applications in the Utilities folder... ..

Make sure the poer adaptor you use is rated for the same or better in terms of current. The instruction for the drive tell you what this is but for example it may be 5V 500mA in which case you need either the original power supply that is known to be working or another on that has those ratings (it does not matter if the mA or A is a little higher but never lower.
If its not the PSU then by all means dismantle it take the drive out and fit it into a pc to check the drive itself. If the drive comes up OK then you know for sure it is the enclosure and these are now cheap enough.

Empty the Recycle Bin -- the files that you "erased" were _only_ moved from their location into the Recycle Bin -- they still occupy just as much disk-space.

Ok same situation happened to me i dropped my Firelite 80Gig, drive would spin no light and the computer would not recognize the drive. All I did was open the case an saw the the internal hardrive had come loose from its pin connection. So all i did was pushed it back in and BAM now it works, hope this helps other people. Thanks C.J.
